In the action game Malicious, you are a "Spirit Vessel," called into the world by the Prophets to vanquish evil. Armed with the "Mantle of Cinders," a cloak that can absorb power from destroyed objects as well as shift form, you wage battle with the "Malicious." Rather than crawling through lengthy dungeons to find and defeat enemies, this game gives you the power to select whichever stage you want and jump directly into epic boss battles in whatever order you please. Upon defeating each boss, you'll absorb its power to obtain new and unique abilities, so the choice is yours as to how you’ll progress. In the end, however, you have one goal -- prepare to face the ultimate evil, Malicious!
